Roy Amar joins Open Door Management

The Open Door Management team is expanding.

Artist manager Roy Amar is joining the company, where he will work alongside co-founders Chris O’Brien and Josh Smith.

Amar brings with him the acts Circles, Drown This City and Creo, who will now reside in a stable which includes Northlane, Make Them Suffer, Void Of Vision, Windwaker and Introvert.

Speaking on his new gig, Amar says he’s “over the moon”.

Joining the company “means a lot to me,” he adds, “it’s been a dream of mine to be part of a team within the music industry. Everyone who knows me will be aware of just how passionate I am about my artists and how I will go to great lengths to take care of them, not only as musicians, but as friends.”

For his artists, joining Open Door Management will create “new opportunities, guidance and a bigger family.”

Amar will learn from two rock specialists with experience on both sides of the table.

Smith is a founding member of the three-time ARIA Award winning act Northlane, and head of music-supply retail business Boutique Sounds.

O’Brien created the multi-city Good Things Festival and served as General Manager on the Soundwave Festival juggernaut, which at its peak shifted over 200,000 tickets each run.

In a statement, O’Brien and Smith note: “We have admired the passion and dedication Roy has with his artists for years. We cannot wait to start working with him and helping guide Circles, Drown This City and Creo in the next phases of their careers globally.”

The entrepreneurs add, “We understand when artists come out of this new environment we are all faced with they will need as much expertise and passion as possible. We are proud Roy has put his faith in us and look forward to the next chapter.”

Open Door Management formed in 2019 with a mission to create an environment where artists are “part of the decision-making process” across all areas of their business.
